Does getting Nesbitt increase our chances with higher-level recruits - Tarris Reed, for example?

As far as I can tell, no. With Reed specifically, he's playing for MOKAN Elite with Damien Mayo and Larry Hughes, Jr., so those guys are all in a different program.

Nesbitt is a Brad Beal Elite kid, so it always helps to keep that pipeline going. He knows the BBE/local dudes already on the roster, and there are more behind him that we're recruiting. So if things go well for him at SLU, it certainly can't hurt. I don't think it's going to be a deciding factor for anyone specific, though.

We have five former BBE players on our team.  Will be six if Goodwin plays another year.  Seems like our relationship with BBE/STL Eagles is in the best place it has ever been.  If kids like Nexbitt, Thatch, and Hargrove have success here, the relationship will only get better.

To add to that comment, BBE's website currently lists 20 players that are in college right now from their program.  This list counts Goodwin.  That means that 6 of the 20 current college players that came out of BBE are at SLU.  That's a pretty big chunk.

PrepHoops agrees that Luke Northweather is trending as a mid-major prospect.

Luke Northweather (Mid-Mo Elite 17U)
What a show Northweather put on in Louisville!  The 6’9” five man from Missouri was outstanding using his size and skill to dominate on the interior.  The rising senior has an excellent feel for scoring on the block with seals, spins, and power moves.  Soft touch around the hoop.  Finished well through contact and was very physical in the paint.  Like how deep of a position he consistently got on the catch.  Rebounded at a high rate in his area and on the defensive end was a force swatting shots all weekend whether it was other guards or opposing post players.  Low-major and mid-major programs should definitely be on this five man.

-was the competition in Louisville also rated as low- or mid-major?
